Time for an Employee Giving Program Pulse Check

Jan 9, 2018 9:15 AM ET

When it comes to annual check-ups we make it a priority to visit the doctor, dentist or even a vehicle inspection. Although many of us put it off as long as we can, or even avoid it all together. Why? Fear of bad news, fear of being judged, fear of costs, fear of change…the list goes on. But check-ups are necessary and good for us. The same holds true with your employee giving program. No better time than now to get started. Not sure where to begin?

Five Steps to Plan Your 2018 Success:

(Click here to download our social impact metrics guide for additional measures to consider.)

  1. Reflect – What were the attitudes, reactions and feelings of your employees and management toward your 2017 giving endeavors?  What did you feel went well?  What did you feel did not?
  2. Review & Revise – What were the actual numbers? (2017 goals vs. results)  Where did you exceed your goals?  Where did you fall short?  Now that you’ve reviewed your 2017 results, how do you revise and set your 2018 goals accordingly?
  3. Retool - What do you need to change, upgrade, add or subtract from your 2017 initiatives to meet your 2018 goals?  Technology?  Awareness?  Manpower?
  4. Reengage – What are you going to do differently in 2018 to reengage your employees and management?  Messaging? VIP programs?  Dollars for Doers?  Team/Dept. Competitions?
  5. Results – If you do all of the steps above, how are you going to measure your 2018 campaigns to show ROI both internally (bottom line) and externally (social impact)?
